[olsr-dev] OLSRD Basic Multicast Plugin
Fri May 12 15:25:47 CEST 2006
I am proud to present you a basic multicast forwarding plugin
for OLSR: BMF. BMF was developed at Thales Communication,
The Basic Multicast Forwarding Plugin floods IP-multicast and
IP-local-broadcast traffic over an OLSRD network. It uses the
Multi-Point Relays (MPRs) as identified by the OLSR protocol
to optimize the flooding of multicast and local broadcast packets
to all the nodes in the network. To prevent broadcast storms, a
history of packets is kept; only packets that have not been seen
in the past 3-6 seconds are forwarded.
To build and use the plugin you need at least OLSRD version 0.4.10.
You may get a copy of the source code on:
In due time I will have a sourceforge.net project in which I will
do maintenance of the code.
Here is how to install it:
Download the above olsr-bmf.tar.gz file into your OLSRD base install
Change directory (cd) to your OLSRD base install directory.
At the command prompt, type:
tar -zxvf ./olsr-bmf.tar.gz
Next, read the readme file:
Have fun with it!
